About The Event:
Inspired by the temperature scarf movement, we are challenging you to collect data and create a data visualization of that data in a medium of your choosing. Knit, crochet, sew, cross-stitch, or even bake your data and share it with us during this open Exhibition. Not sure what kind of question to ask? Explore weather patterns, think about a daily habit you’d like to document or, as one participant is doing, think about What Could (Jeff) Bezos Buy? Still searching for the right data set to represent? Click on “more info” below and check out the recordings of two webinars featuring Dr. Laura Perovich sharing her experience creating physical, contextual, and interactive experiences around data that can help people understand and act on social challenges. Then go and CREATE!
